Sustainability. It’s recognizing that developing new solutions is not just from the ground up but also what goes into the ground.
A selection of our ReEarth solutions have both BPI and TUV OK compost HOME and TUV OK compost INDUSTRIAL certification. TUV OK compost HOME certification guarantees complete compostability even in a garden compost pile, which uses a lower temperature and slower-paced process than industrial composting. Products featuring the BPI and OK compost INDUSTRIAL label are guaranteed as compostable in an industrial composting facility.
Some of our compostable films are certified as ReEarth Lomi Approved™. With a Lomi-approved package, one places the empty package into the Lomi countertop composter together with food scraps. This process will turn the items into dirt. For a product or packaging to be Lomi Approved™, the product or packaging must be proven to:
- Meet standard compost certification requirements, as well as be proven to disintegrate and biodegrade in a composting facility. This means it must transform into CO2 and organic matter in an aerobic composting environment.
- Not contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to the environment or hinder plant growth.
- Physically disintegrate to a minimum threshold size after a Lomi cycle.
Adding to these certifications, three of our groundbreaking ReEarth compostable films have earned BioPreferred certification from the USDA and can display the USDA Certified Biobased label.
ReTreve is our recyclable family of films made up of all polyethylene monoweb coextruded materials. These flexible packaging films meet the Sustainable Packaging Coalition guidelines for store drop-off recycling through the How2Recycle program.
S-OneLP’s ReTreve films deliver high clarity or opacity, excellent heat seal strength, and high-performance moisture and oxygen barriers. These films come in 4 mil, 4.5 mil clear and white pouch films; 3.5 mil LLDPE sealant films, and 90-gauge clear MDO reverse print films, all of which are certified for store drop off.
Flexible packaging converters have found success with the ReTreve line in applications including bar wrap and flow wrap, snack webs, pouches, and stand-up pouches.
